First, the systems mechanically are identical but the software and board setting are where the difference lies. The ProTrainer panels/stations are joined and the MultiTrainer separates them by between 1 to 3 meters.  The consequences are as follows:

16.1. Because of the space between the stations, it is safer to run larger classes with larger teams on each station.  This allows space for turns in round-robin style games and also for ball play where a wider space is needed for catching the returning balls.

16.2. The ProTrainers joined panels prevent you from having large teams over 6 just because of safety and you are more restricted in the variety of games for larger teams.

16.3. The ProTrainer becomes popular because it can operate in both station mode as explained above and, in sports mode where the joined panels all cooperate as a single station for serious sports training.  In other words, in ProTrainer mode, it becomes an electronic backboard for any sports and can simulate the returns from a tennis opponent, goalkeeper, or other team as in volleyball.  As a result, the ProTrainer offers a lot of games that the MultiTrainer cannot offer.

Ultimately, your decision comes down to:

  1. How big are my classes? If more than 20 the go with the MultiTrainer
  2. Do we want to offer sports training? If so, go with the ProTrainer
  3. Do we want to practice physical distancing? Go with the MultiTrainer
